As you loaf around in your sweat soaked undies during the hottest summer on record, the final countdown is on for GWAR fans to come cool down in the crystal blue sparkling pools of Hadad’s Lake (7900 Osborne Turnpike) at the 6th Annual GWAR B-Q. That’s right, Saturday, August 15th, in beautiful Richmond, VA the Bohabs will gather from all over the world to celebrate the 30th birthday of your beloved space marauders, GWAR. The members of GWAR have donned their pointy birthday hats and paper kazoos in anticipation, and the bands playing the event have put together a…errr…we’ll call it a ‘touching’ video to wish the Scumdogs a Happy Birthday! Check out the birthday greetings from Clutch, Down, Cancer Bats, Goatwhore, Ghoul, Gritter, Dead Earth Politics, RPG, Bat, Stonecutters, Valkyrie and Troglodyte HERE.
